S.A.F.E. Classrooms: Create Bully-Free Classrooms for LGBT Youth


Did you know LGBTQ youth are three times more likely to drop out of school than their peers? Studies also show kids who do not feel safe have lower GPA’s and attendance.

We can change this.

Teach for America has teamed up with leading LGBT and anti-bullying organizations to create the S.A.F.E. Classrooms campaign. S.A.F.E. is a new effort to arm the education community with the resources – posters, toolkits, workshops – to create and declare classrooms that are Safe and Affirming For Everyone.

All students should be able to learn in a safe environment to achieve their full potential. We can’t do it without the support of individuals in communities all across the country – without people like you.

Help create classrooms that are Safe and Affirming For Everyone. Sign the pledge today.

Teach For America started this pledge with a single signature, and now has 18,645 supporters. Start a petition today to change something you care about.
